The long-awaited refurbishment of Dublin’s Francis Street begins today.
The project, which was granted planning permission in 2017, has been welcomed by businesses and residents alike.
The works include widened pavements, 20 new trees and landscaped areas, street furniture and new street lighting.
Reduced speed and consistent foot paths will allow for more relaxed travel for cyclists and easier crossing for pedestrians.
Work on the first section, between Dean Swift Square and Thomas David Street, begins today.
It's expected the entire project will take 10 months to complete.
